An important milestone occurring on Maui this year at the 17th annual AMOS Conference.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of AMOS, originally the ARPA Midcourse Observation Station, later Air Force Maui Optical Station, today the Air Force Maui Optical and Supercomputing Site. The acronym has changed, the people have changed, the facilities have changed, the mission has changed, but it’s always been associated with the state-of-the-art electro-optical assets atop Haleakala, and the staff that supported the research and operational missions of the US government.
We will be celebrating this anniversary with a banquet held at the Wailea Marriott on Maui, in conjunction with the annual Advanced Maui Optical and Space Surveillance Technologies Conference, aka the AMOS Conference. The banquet will be held to honor all of the folks who have contributed to the presence on Maui over the years in support of surveillance of space and the associated missions, whether those individuals were military, civilian, or contractor.
The early years of AMOS pre-date the internet and computer databases, so contact information for many AMOS alumni is not readily available. If you have contact information for folks associated with AMOS from the distant past, particularly from the previous century, please pass this information along to them, or pass their contact information back to us and we will contact them.
Join us on Wednesday, 21 September 2016 at the Wailea Marriott. Dinner fee is $125.00 and includes a t-shirt memento*. Seating is limited. Priority will be given to those with historical connection to AMOS. Please check the event website for registration details.
